In response to the letter: Is the Echo showing racist tendencies?

How irritating to see how language can trigger people to ridiculous levels of whining and whingeing.

FYI, ‘whitesplaining’ is not a word and, if it was, this may be racist.

Seems fashionable to denigrate, blame and boo white men. Censorship and PC-speak is a simple equation to strangulate critical thinking and freedom of expression.

The irony is, the so-called offending letter was misinterpreted and not read for its historical context.

May Byron Shire remain a place where freedom of expression is valued! Nuf sed.
